Totally different. The NV drivers do not use the GPL symbols at all.
I suspect (but have no knowledge) that the GPL licensed ndiswrapper uses the GPL symbols but does not provide access to those symbols to any driver it loads. At most, it will translate between the GPL symbols and the Windows symbols.
Come to think of it, I suppose it's technically possible that the NV driver wrapper (which is GPL) might do the same thing.
Pure speculation on my part, so if I'm wrong, please let me know.
